- Visits from countries with similar educational structures are rewarding and dialogues with these visitors make learning from one another possible, both in the short and long term, says Martin Norsell.

During the visit the delegation also received information about an education programme for Swedish officers, a training process with a focus on joint capabilities, education and methods of operational planning processes and the Total Defence. On request the delegation was given an overview of civil-military coordination in international operations.
